Tianji Releases New Infographic on Chinese Professional Social Networking Highlighting China’s Unique Internet Culture
SAN FRANCISCO, and BEIJING, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Tianji, a Viadeo company and the leading professional social network in China with over 8 million members, today released a new infographic featuring interesting facts related to China’s Internet culture, and how they differ from Western-style social networking.
“Although Tianji is already the number one professional social network in China with over 8 millions members — growing at around 380,000 new members monthly — the market for professional networks in China is still in its infancy,” said Derek Ling, CEO, Tianji. “The professional social network is poised for exponential growth, and we are best-positioned to capitalize on it because we understand the Internet culture here in China, and can take those characteristics into consideration for a social network that caters to the Chinese market.”
Some of the statistics from the infographic include the following:
- Chinese professionals do not separate Social, Family and Work. As a result, professionals typically need to make a “personal connection” before developing a business relationship.
- One out of twenty Tianji members is a part of the “local elite” comprised of professionals at the C-level, vice presidents and entrepreneurs.
- Popular conversations on Tianji include food, relationships and respect for parents.
